Shopping, giving back


I haven’t yet had the chance to get up to Mohegan Lake to see the new home of Shades of Green.

I’ve written about Myra Marsocci’s original spot in Peekskill a few times and knew she’d made a move.

The new spot is filled with even more eco-friendly choices for you, your friends, your home and your garden, and all profits from the eco shop go to support public beautification projects.

And keep in mind the third annual Thanksgiving Weekend Sale continues, with 10 percent off holiday greens through Sunday.

Shades of Green is now at 1949 E. Main St. (on the Tom Thumb campus, Route 6) in Mohegan Lake.

For more details, call 914-526-8470 or visit its Web site.

Old-school works for me, every time


I hadn’t been up to Bruised Apple Books & Music in a few months.

But I was back this morning.

Instead of “just browsing” — sorry, couldn’t resist — I was there to take an even closer look since it’s going to be my “Shop of the Week” for next week.

And the minute I opened the door of the Peekskill shop, its charms hit me again.


It just smells “old” — in a good, good way. Read more of this entry »
